What a special treat to be honored with a third place ribbon for one of my miniatures at the Pirates Alley Art Show! My friend Jane also took home a ribbon. I call that Lagniappe.
I think there is no greater joy for an artist than to see people admiring their work, well, and selling it too. Ok playing with grandchildren is up there on the list.
The French Quarter Festival was grand. I came home looking more like a crawfish though- red. I am looking forward to attending it again next year. Thanks to all my friends and family who made the special effort to come and visit me. And to my son who took all those great reference photos.
